I bought a computer from laptop_life_extenders on EBAY. I bought this computer as a best offer of 178.00 the model is an HP Probook 4430s and here are the specs:
Dual Core Laptop 1.6Ghz 4GB 320GB WiFi Bluetooth
The computer was sold to me with a LINUX operating system. I am a computer engineer myself and once i received the computer i decided to change the Operating System for the one that the computer brought originally WINDOWS 7. I installed the OS and DRIVERS and 10 minutes after the computer locked by itself with a message as follows:
Thhis device has been frozen by the laptop owner. (Everest University Online). To regain access to this laptop you must contact the Support Services Department at Everest University Online.

I did my research on this and it turns out this is a STOLEN computer. It belonged to someone that either didnt finished his/her degree or didnt pay the tuition back to everrest. I did my research online and this computer came with lojack and the only way to avoid it is to install LINUX on it, THIS IS THE REASON OF WHY IT HAD THAT OPERATING SYSTEM. They knew it was a stolen laptop and they sold it on EBAY!!!
People watch out for this seller!!!! Now they want ME to pay shipping on this!!! Shame on them !
